COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 65 IBU’s, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that’s not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

A run of the mill ipa. Nice citrus, subtle pine. Good balance with the malt, medium bitterness, sharp citrus oil finish, quite nice and easily drinkable.

Tranquillity (2324) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2016
Canned. Hazy yellow body, small white head. The aroma is very flowery, almost with some weed. The taste is amazing, with a very thick palate. Wonderful finish.

This review is for the "Finest Kind" IPA. Not sure this is the same as their "IPA". This stuff was likely the best IPA I’ve ever had. Pours clear golden, with a foamy short lived white head. Ridges of lace coat the glass all the way down. Aroma is fruity with tangerine, grapefruit, honey and cracker-like pale malts. Citrusy hops up front gives way to tropical fruit and floral hop flavor explosion. A very solid bready malt profile provides just enough balance. Full bodied with high carbonation. Mild pound cake like resin sweetness in the very long finish. This is a fantastic, benchmark IPA. Jam packed with juicy hops, but still balanced and enjoyable.

ALIBALI (2085) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 Relativ wenig Aroma, ein bisschen fruity, leicht erdig würzig und ausgesprochen sanft. Optisch der dunkelgelb getrübte Genosse. Der Trunk fett bitter, wirklich. Die Würze bleibt, hinzu kommen harzige Nuancen und einige Zitrusspritzer. Fertig ist ein extrem verhopftes Bitter IPA. 0,3/4,50€ vom Hahn im STRONGBOWS Kiel.

Pours lightly hazy, pale gold from the bottle and leaves a creamy white head with soapy, sticky lacing. Aroma is floral with strong citrus notes. Taste is overall bitter and dry, but tempered by rich caramel malt undertones. Finishes bitter and a touch warming. I would put the body rather as medium. Good stuff.

biir (1357) - Berlin, - NOV 7, 2016
Bottle in the US - as Finest Kind IPA - From the first zip it was a great IPA for me. Dry, bitter, a bit of caramell, resin, pear, lemon. Well balanced. Could drink that forever.

UM02 (366) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2016
Hoppy but a sweet floral hoppiness instead of a bitter hop flavour. A bit of caramel and fruit and some grain in the malt. Solid IPA though not exceptional.

3.4
venom666 (1025) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - OCT 21, 2016
Slightly hazy amber color with medium white head. Citrusy aroma, resiny and grapefruity, slightly pine. Taste follows the aroma, citrus, resin, pine and grapefruit, but very boozy for being a 6.9% beer. Moderate bitterness in the aftertaste.
